Samsung 840 Pro 256GB SSD Review

Samsung’s minimalistic design exudes confidence.  Their 840 PRO SSD has been marketed as a high performance engine powering a finely tuned sports car.  They even do a fine job convincing you that you deserve the drive…

As a perfectionist in search of the best performance and with a desire to be among the best in your field, you deserve Samsung’s SSD 840 PRO. The 840 PRO is the fastest and most-reliable SSD on the market – like nothing you’ve seen before. It assures a top-notch user experience, which guarantees better output on your behalf. The 840 PRO is the best choice for professionals looking to supercharge their workflow.

Ultimately, the drive kicks butt.  With numbers that top the charts in nearly all benchmarks and a price point that is inline with other drives in its class; you can’t deny the fact that they are at the top of their game. Samsung’s claims of 540MB/s read and 450MB/s write were easily met and exceeded with hardware that is considered “average” by today’s standards.

Samsung 840 EVO 250GB Review

We love speed... and after reviewing the Samsung 840 Pro, we were chomping at the bit to get the 840 EVO in the lab. Not only does the newer EVO model use newer 19nm 3-bit Triple-Level Cell vs that of 2-bit MLC found in the 840 Pro, but it also features a much more attractive price-point and an increased IOPS... on paper.
